retainers and partial retainers

A while back I had what is always great conversation with Don Ramer. I enjoy seeing him at shows and we always have fun at night. Last time I saw him he said something interesting to me. At one point he puts his arm around me and says something like do you know the thing about bacon and eggs? I said I like to eat it but I am not sure if that's what you're talking about. He said the chicken made a donation but the pig made a commitment. I think about that all… Continue

"Social networking as a job search tool will explode."

The number of unemployed Americans will continue to grow throughout 2009 and will level out in the first half of 2010, according to Chicago-based Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

Employment levels may stay flat until well into 2011 and job creation even then will show only moderate gains. It may be 2013 before we start to see the level of employment growth… Continue

Military Tracking Santa's Sleigh

Who says Santa Claus doesn't exist?

The military personnel charged with being the eyes in the sky are certainly acting like he does — and they've been joined on the Internet by millions of believers.

Even doubters have reason to pause when they hear the North American Aerospace Defense Command — or NORAD, which monitors air and space threats against the U.S. and Canada — is in charge of the annual Christmas mission to keep children… Continue

Dear Claudia,

If a candidate and a hiring manager were duking it out in a boxing ring, and the match was tied in the final round, and you had to decide the winner, who would you choose?

A December To Remember & A New Year Full Of Promise

Recently, I gave my family as a Christmas gift a copy of my childhood journal kept from the time I was a wee lad.

I reread, and reread and as I prepared this gift it occurred to me that I have seen so many blessings this past year.

2008 will be the year I remember where I turned a corner professionally. I had all the mortar and bricks to build something great, but 2008 was where crucial life decisions, professional turning points, and a foray into and a return to staffing… Continue

The best way to target your interview answers without sucking up to the interviewer: Know Thyself

I often advise candidates on targeting their answers in a job interview. But sometimes this gets misinterpreted. It's something hiring managers will complain about occasionally, "I think the candidate was just telling me what I want to hear." Avoiding that seems to be a very slippery slope, and a very fine line when trying to do your best in a job interview.

It is always a good idea to ask the interviewer what they feel are the most important qualifications to have in…

What makes me a smart recruiter

Great topic and great posts thus far, here are some things I think are essentials...

1) Being Proactive versus reactive - you must guide your candidate and client through the process and talk about things like other interviews and counteroffers long before those things come up. Get up front contracts with your candidates and clients on common struggling points- if you have the same thing repeatedly costing you from success- you MUST learn and keep that from happening by proactively… Continue
